Interesting boxes...what's the logic behind them?

Before you attempt to beat the odds, make sure you can survive the odds beating you.

Okay...


I'll do the math...a rough estimation of the math because wldman does not engage the fantasy calculator. Sell to Buy call it 40 ticks. That buy to sell call it 60 ticks. Sell to closing buy around 11:30, perhaps 20 ticks. This is E7 so each tick is $6.25.

40 X 6.25 = $250
60 X 6.25 = $375
20 X 6.25 = $125

That does not suck.

So, I'd like to create the entry strategy and a few exit strategies. Who can tell the wldman how to do that?

Ok...How do you determine the start/end of the count? Does the oscillator at the bottom contribute to the count?

Oscillator...

is separate and non-colinear. The question is not about how the count starts and ends, I don't need help with that. The question was posted to ask for help in creating a strategy type code so that efficacy of entry and selected exits could be tested stand alone and then if determined to be valuable combined with other ideas.

Okay wldman stepping way out

This is from a friend of a friend of a friend...a guy I have never met.

Lurie Children's Marathon Team: Mr. Brian Justin Koenig - Lurie Children's Marathon Team

A while back the call went out for blood donors for Brian's son. My wife, being of the rare rh factor needed, and I as parents and as people where moved by this.

I cannot even imagine how difficult it is for a family with a small child in great need to get through something like this. What I do know is that I cannot stand by without doing something.

I'll be on Brian's donor list as Bones Family. If any ONE, and for EVERY futures.io (formerly BMT) member that shows up on that donor list with a reasonable contribution, I will donate one day's trading profits to this cause.

So if you want to jack with the wldman, here is your chance.

I just chipped in $25.....but chose to remain anonymous, like to give more but there's a lot of others I give to.....kind of spreading the wealth so to speak(what's left of it after Obama gets his piece )

I sent $100 on behalf of the futures.io (formerly BMT) members. Fundraising on futures.io (formerly BMT) has been non-existent lately which makes me sad, PayPal stepped on my throat so hard last year for raising 'donations' without being a 501c non-profit it really hampered my giving spirit. I need to find a way around PayPal to do fundraising for all the good causes we've done in the past each year.

Best wishes to your friend and family.

Mike
